Ideas, Updates & Analysis
Walmart has dropped down to $85 from it's recent 52 week high and record high of almost $110.
It has recently acquired Flipkart for $16 billion. (Amazon reportedly made a bid as well which may have increased the price.)
Speaking of Amazon, guess who else offers 2 day free shipping now? Yes. Walmart.
And the radio commercial I heard today mentioned that there is no annual membership fee like 5 times.
A nice jab at Amazon.
While these 2 retailers battling it out over prices, I (almost) always remember to login to my ebates account first to get an extra 2% to 10% off my online purchases.
Savings on top of savings...I like it.
Anyway, I'm betting that this sell-off is a bit overdone.
Especially since other large retailers like COST and M have received positive reactions to their recent earnings announcements.
Something else I noticed on the 1 year chart is the price is close to a support trend. Maybe we get a nice bounce off of it?
Earnings for WMT is tomorrow. Either way, it should be exciting.
If I am wrong about this in the short term, I am happy to hold this stock.
After all, the holidays are not that far away.
So I finally checked out what the Amazon Prime Store Card is all about.
It's pretty simple.
5% back every day on Amazon purchases.
Plus, I (almost) always remember to login to my ebates account first to get an extra 2% to 10% off my Amazon purchases.
I assumed it was through Amazon since Amazon is into everything nowadays.
The company behind the credit card is Synchrony Financial.
I have credit cards with other major companies but I have to say I was very impressed with the application process and most of all their account management website.
As a programmer, I have a special appreciation for a well thought out design.
(I hope you feel that way about Symbol Surfing!)
After doing more research, it turns out that SYF offers the same type of service to other major organizations.
There is a decent dividend yield of almost 2% and a very low P/E ratio of 12%.
This company just hit an all-time high and has had a nice retracement.
I think it is time to get in.
Hey, if Amazon trusts them, I do too.
